In the Now
Since 2016 I have been making Glass Cathedrals that explicitly deal with politics and political activism. Each Glass Cathedral was created and exhibited separately (unlike in other collections) but I have brought them together here to be viewed in one place.
Larger than Life: George Floyd
First madeApril 2021. 100% of sales will be donated to PlayMarin, CA.
“Larger than Life" was made to mark the death of George Floyd and the pursuit of racial equity. 50% of proceeds of the sales of this artwork will be donated to PlayMarin, an organization that provides opportunities for children of diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in Marin, California, to learn and grow together through play. I met the founder, Paul Austin when I lived in Marin, and gave him one of the boxes as thanks for his brilliant work for the community.
You may have seen in the news (it was on the front page of the BBC) that Paul and his family settled a lawsuit with a real estate appraiser whom they accused of giving their home a low valuation because of their race. There had been an article about it in Marin Magazine, and one of the photos of their beautiful home showed the George Floyd Glass Cathedral. Extremely minor detail in the grand scheme of things!
All the proceeds of any sales of “Larger than Life” will go to Play Marin. If you are interested please email.
The mural of George Floyd that I’ve used in the background was created by Berlin artist @eme_freethinker
